Viewmodels are not visible¶
Add the following to your
viewmodel_fov 70 r_drawviemodel 1
viewmodel_fov, you can use any value you prefer.
Game stutters on join¶
To counteract the %killername% bug and other HUD bugs, mastercomfig runs
hud_reloadscheme on the first spawn of your first match, with the caveat of the game stuttering/freezing when you first join.
You can disable it by adding
alias game_overrides_once to your
user/autoexec.cfg, though this is not recommended.
TF2 crashes when entering a Competitive Matchmaking match¶
This is due to the config reset feature of in-game competitive matchmaking.
Make sure you are using DirectX 9 (
dxlevel 90 or above). Competitive Matchmaking does not work on DirectX 8 (Official FAQ).
mm_override in console on the main menu before you join a in-game
competitive match to make the config compatible with competitive matchmaking.
You will have to exit the game to reset the lock that competitive puts on the game’s settings.
TF2 exits on startup¶
Make sure you don’t have any infinite loops caused by an
exec autoexec in your custom configs (like in your
user/autoexec.cfg). Additionally, make sure your custom configs don’t contain
quit, and that your launch options don’t contain
Preloading animation and/or model mods not working¶
If you are trying to use this sort of mod and preload it to bypass
sv_pure, people have found async disk loading to be incompatible with preloading. Install the Slow I/O addon to completely disable async loading, and thus fix this issue.
yttrium’s viewmodels not preloading¶
If you use yttrium’s viewmodels, the installer adds the preload commands to your
autoexec.cfg. However, since mastercomfig doesn’t use your
autoexec.cfg, you’ll have to add this to your
map_background preload_room; wait 10; disconnect
TF2 crashing on a custom map¶
If TF2 is crashing to desktop after a custom map loading or after picking a class on a custom map, enter
mat_phong 1 in console. The crashes are caused by lightmapped props and phong must be enabled to allow the map to load properly. All Valve maps except for
rd_asteroid don’t use lightmapped props. More information at TF2Maps.
Item panels are taking too long to load¶

Players’ sprays are not working even with the module enabled¶
Players’ sprays are treated like a decal in-game. To get sprays to work, you have to set the
decals module to
low or higher.
Particle-related errors in console¶
Ignore these, as these are red herrings that happen in a clean TF2 installation and do not affect FPS.
“Unknown command gl_*” errors in console¶
mastercomfig sets some OpenGL-related cvars, which are only available on Linux and macOS. Thus, these errors appear a few times when using mastercomfig on Windows. These errors are harmless and can be ignored safely.
